Policy Research and Practice

Postgraduate courses starting in 2018

Develop the capability to broaden an understanding of critical issues facing policymakers and policy practitioners today.

In all areas of government and public administration – whether in local government, national civil services or international organisations – the world of policymaking is changing fast.

There is an increasing recognition of the need for a secure and transparent evidence base on which to make policy, but there are also a range of approaches and methods that policymakers can use to assess the evidence base and consider the likely impact of different policies.
